Nobody Loves Michael

A quick flip to the Fox News Channel brought me face to face with Michael Barone, a bespectacled fellow who has decided to cover the partial results from Florida by reading raw electoral numbers out loud.

Never mind that graphics are probably better for that sort of thing. Apparently Fox has time to fill, and so Michael (Raymond and Robert's cousin?) is droning on with results. "This one's from a Navy base near Miami, uh, Jacksonville," he tells us, making a several-hundred-mile mistake. Then he shouts out some numbers that make no sense and moves on to another county.

I'd rather see Chris Wallace do a soft-shoe routine, honestly. It would be more informative.
